La Femme Cosmetics Blush Review

Besides lip glosses, blushes are definitely another weakness of mine (OK let me be real..ALL makeup is a weakness of mine! lol)...But truly blushes are one of my favorites. Within the last couple of years, I have discovered blushes after joining different makeup forums and watching you-tube videos raving about blush. I have always been into makeup, but for some reason I always avoided blushes. That is until I discovered the true value of a great blush. It really does add that something extra to the complexion and can really make your face glow...

Well I had read and saw a couple of reviews on these La femme blushes. What interested me most was the insane pigmentation people raved about. Being the brown skin girl that I am, pigmentation is a must. So I decided to try these out and yes they are LOVE <3. Definitely pigmented and they come in an array of different colors. Textures range from matte, low shimmer, and high shimmer. I placed my first order back in November and picked up Terra Cotta, Russet, Purple Passion, Golden Russet, Golden Rose, and Framboesia. Once I received these I knew I HAD to have more. Next I ordered Sienna, Plum Frost, Peach Sparkle (on backorder), Mocha, Golden Ruby, Cinnabar, and Bordeaux.

These blushes are everything I ever wanted in a blush...pigmented, smooth, and silky. The best part of these blushes is that they are extremely affordable. I ordered mine from makeupmania.com for $2.50 each! I ordered them in the pan, but you can also order them in the pot for $3.00. I ordered a 15 pan palette from bf-beauty.com for about $7 that fits them perfectly. LOVE these blushes. They definitely rival some of my MAC blushes. My favorites right now are Sienna, Terra Cotta, and Plum Frost.

Check out the sample pics below to see the pigmentation. These definitely must be used with a light hand for the risk of looking like a clown...lol

Hope you check them out!

LORAC Tie Dye For Lip Gloss Collection Review

And just when I thought no other lip gloss could come between me and my NYX Megashine lip glosses.....I discovered these beauties! The LORAC Tie Dye lip glosses are not only pretty in the tube, but oh so nice on the lips! I had been eyeing these for a while in Sephora, Ulta and online. I am a total lip gloss whore lol..I have more lip glosses than I care to count! :( 

So I was hesistant to try them out, but finally took the plunge and bought them. I mean my NYX glosses do me well and they will always be my babies, but these were still calling me. I love a very opague and pigmented lip gloss. My lips are pretty darkly pigmented, so I have to use a gloss that will actually show true to color on my lips. These lip glosses are definitely just that..highly pigmented, non-sticky, and with one swipe of the brush they cover great.

The lip gloss collection retails for $25 and comes with 5 glosses: Flaming Mix (Red), Berry Blender (Purple), Shocking Twist (Fuchsia), In the Mix (Nude) and Social Mixer (Pale pink).

They have a beautiful tie dye effect in the tube making them look so yummy! Although many colors appear in the tube, they ultimately come out as one color. The glosses also have some really good for your lips ingredients including: Acai Berry, Pomegranate, Grape Seed oil, Coconut oil, and Apricot oil. They are very moisturizing to the lips. I love these a lot. My favorites at the moment is the Berry Blender and In the Mix.

So if you haven't already, check these out. You definitely won't regret it! :)
